I flew into Reagan National, was picked up by the Marriott van service and within minutes was at the door of the Renaissance. The staff was freindly and professional. My room on the 15th floor was quiet. No airport of city noise. The bruch had a nice variety of foods and the service was attentive. The main lobby is a work of art. Modern wood scuplture and large lights make the hotel go beyond a "W" Hotel expereince. The location was great since you were within a short distanct to the heart of Washington DC without the hub-bud of staying in a city known for gridlock. There is a Metro Station near by on the Blue Line to move about Metro and Central DC.
